THE PREDICTION

It has not been a season to write home about for Hubert Hurkacz so far with his best showing being a run to the semi-finals of the Auckland Open back in January but he is now looking to find some momentum on the clay stretch and will be delighted with his first-round win over in-form Dan Evans. He faces a stern opponent here though in the form of Andrey Rublev, who recently reached the quarter-finals of the US Open and looked to have made the transition to the dirt well in his straight-set victory over Facundo Bagnis in the first round here. The Russian has an impressive 20-5 record in 2020 and is becoming one of the most consistent players on tour so you would fancy him to secure a fairly routine win here.
